  • New Mexico State Capitol guard alleges hostile work environment

    Santa Fe, New Mexico (AP) 2-08

    A female security officer at the state Capitol alleges her co-workers spied on her, harassed her and falsely accused her of disobeying orders.

    Roberta Everett of Tesuque, in a lawsuit filed in state district court during January, alleges she was discriminated against because she is an American Indian woman. She said she fears her bosses have “already cultivated a chain of adverse action against her such that the next step in their design might in fact include her wrongful termination.”
